Safety in Offices


Publication date 1944
Topics need keyword
Publisher Weston (Carry) Productions, Inc
Digitizing sponsor U.S. Navy, Bureau of Aeronautics
This is one of the few films that shows the dangers of the white-collar life. Mandated (we can guess) to grab and hold the attention of the tired war worker, this film revels in carelessness, surprise, and pratfalls.

FUNNY ACCIDENT SITUATIONS AT WORK!!

Subject: Typewriter bites girl!
The narrator is a riot, delivering gems like

“Typewriter bites girl!”
“Desk traps man!”
“Oh now, why cut off the end of that lovely digit; especially the one you point with?!”
“You should’ve stopped the machine before adjusting it, but, now that you’ve injured yourself….”

in a jocular, ironic tone. Great stuff.

viewing this film could provide an antidote for mild depression.. There are many people making mistakes and getting hurt in the workplace. It is a standard work safety film which with judicious editing ,might still be useful in todays conditions WHY NOT EDIT THIS FILM mute the soundtrack, add comic music and edit the clips..could be very funny

Nice looking comedy of manners film produced for military personaell about the many hazards an office might have. Almost played for laughs, but should somewhat be taken seriously, we see Miss Whipple and her motley of office workers stumble fall, get fingers caught etc while no doubt the viewer laughs and learns. Nice shots of Office Equipment that are not used anymore in this film as well.
